BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
I am so incredibly lucky and honored to have the opportunity to run the 2014 Boston Marathon on Monday April 21! I will be running as part of a charity team benefitting the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal - every dollar counts and can help improve the lives of the Haitian people still feeling the impacts of the terrible earthquake of 2010.
J/P HRO is dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. Following the tragic earthquake of 2010, J/P HRO began working immediately to make a meaningful and lasting impact in Haiti. J/P HRO programs focus on supporting the residents of the camps we manage and the surrounding areas transition from life left homeless by the earthquake to durable, sustainable and prosperous communities. J/P HRO has implemented its mission through four integrated programs: Medical, Camp & Relocations Management, Engineering & Construction, and Community Development. The organization works with the support of and in collaboration with local and national government leaders, community-based organizations, other international NGOs, UN agencies, donors, and—most importantly—community members themselves.
